In many cases, your program's data will come from external sources, not from within Mathematica. This article describes how to import data into Mathematica by reading a file or prompting the user for input, and also how to write output to a disk file in a form that can be read by other applications. Much of the material is taken from the tutorial book Mathematica: A Practical Approach (Prentice-Hall, 1992)
